An Acronym Correction: “BOGOHO”

Update 10/30/14: This is one of my favorite old posts. Now that I understand my OCD and my literal nature, it makes sense to me that this would be one of my pet peeves . . .

Every time I see one of these Payless Shoes “Buy One Get One Half Off” commercials, I sigh in frustration.

BOGO means “Buy One, Get One”.  Not “Buy One, Get One Half Off”.  That, obviously, would be BOGOHO.  Why do they not realize that?

And, I suppose, a person who just can’t pass up every opportunity to buy one and get one half off might be called a BOGOHO ho . . . but that’s probably irrelevent in this argument.

    I think we should start saying BOGOHO. So much more annoying than BOGO, which drives my son crazy
